Time to get a good, a very good look at Transformers: Prime - Beast Hunters Voyager Class Optimus Prime.

Thanks to 78dm.net, we now have an up-close look at the Autobot Leader. The new images finally put an end to "whether we are seeing a Faceplate or a Mouth?" debate. However, on-package CGI render of Beast Hunters Optimus Prime possibly indicate a new CGI face model for the show. But, we'll have to wait and see to confirm.

A size comparison with the Powerizer Optimus Prime indicate that this new Voyager mold is much larger than the previous.

We've mirrored the images for your viewing pleasure. Take a look at this fantastic Pictorial Review, after the jump.

shroobmaster
WHOOOOOooop WHOoOooOp WHooooP!

Pull over sir, that truck is TOO DAMN SWAG! Holy shit, the lack of paint is lame but that fucker is COOL.
Bossguy
I think it looks sort of... strange.
NemiMonkey
Screw it if he goes on clearance he is becoming Motormaster in my collection. Now to work on my painting skills.
matrixprime
What happened to his face? I like where they went but this isn't replacing FE OP
Wadeledge
What's up with his face???
shibamura_prime
I still like this guy, but he's kind of a butterface. :/
Mechafire
Looks freaking crazy. Like, if TFP was an anime, this is what OP would look like. His face looks weird though; admittedly I kinda wish he had a mouthplate.

Regardless, so far this is the only "redo" of a character in the BH line I think I'm gonna pick up.
Stonecrusher
DUDE!!!!!! Dude dude dude dude du- *Smack* Sorry. It just was awesome to look at.
axiom
Awesome! All the haters will still probably hate and just try to bring up new imaginary flaws. To me, this is pure SEXY!
phoenix88
looks cool. still slightly on the fence.
netkid
Yeah.....looks like I'll just be buying the really big Predaking. Nothing else from Beast Hunters has really "grabbed" my attention as much as that toy has.

All that green (eyes, chest, sword) reminds me of Wing Gundam.
Roller81
wow! early images had me depressed, but these look frackin sweet. still waiting to see what it looks like up close. I have reservations about the face and that green sword may have to go.....
Jetbolt
I might pick this up.
Murasame
Funny nose and mouth he's got there.

The plastic looks like the plastic from Kabaya toys.
slackerforhire
Not digging the face very much, but the rest of it looks fun. I'll probably end up adding this guy to the collection and seeing if my meager customizing skills can do something to make the face look a bit less weird.
Omegax80
Hmmm... Looks like a cross between Prime, Animated, Cybertron, and... Rescue Bots?

The brightness of it makes me say Rescue Bots, the TFP Voyager Optimus' colors seemed a bit darker to me. The chest and truck mode looks similar to the Cybertron version, and the head, looks more like the Animated design... but resembles Ultra Magnus?!

The strange thing is... all of it together makes for one cool looking figure. I wouldn't go as far as to say "badass" but with that sword he does look pretty neat.
Pcm979
Aha! I knew he'd look so much better once we got pictures of him which weren't horribly mistransformed. What is it with Hasbro's stock photo department?

Anyway, this guy looks almost purchasable now. I say 'almost' primarily because I'm suddenly having money problems, but also because I'm going to be interested to see what Takara will do with this guy's paint, and/or if a version with a nicer face comes out. Neither of which will help my money problems at all.
Optimus1138
Aside from the green stuff, it's kind of cool, but kind of weird.
webz
So much for the realistic look of TF-P... back to silly looking "futuristic" vehicles... TF Cybertron gets a second chance...
DonnieTsunami
This figure is a complete victory in my books. Head needs a faceplate, styrene to the rescue. Some paint apps.....

This guy is designed for customs. Gonna be awesome seeing what everyone does to him.
Cheem The Rup
Gimme a 3p better face, a 3p metal sword, a takara paint treatment and it's mine
Sludge
I kinda hate it. It looks like Prime Optimus has sex with Cybertron Optimus and 9 months later this abomination got shat out.
Jazz210
Sweet ass sweet!
I was unsure at first but now Ill buy on site and he comes with the BIG ass sword! I forgot the name of it and its on the tip on my tongue smh
Smashs
Yay! Another very easy pass!
Stygian360
Thanks for the pics! I think he looks great, but like most I'm not turned on by his new face. Speaking of; any chance we can get a few close-ups of his face? I can't really make it out too well based on the distance from the camera.
The_Boxman
It looks neat, but it doesn't feel like Optimus Prime to me. He's giving me a Nova Prime vibe with the wings though.

Am I the only that see there an awesome Galvatron ?
ZeroEdge
Y'know, give him a coat of paint, and take off the wings and the star sabre, and this looks like it could pass off as a Prime Motormaster
Smasher
I still wish that the green parts were blue, or at least that the side windows were the same color as the front windows, but these pictures look much better than the BBTS images last month.

Looking forward to losing $20 on this guy.
Dah Padre
I'll say animated prime, energon wingsaber combo.
Paxtin
Robot mode does look kind of cool, but the truck mode just doesn't work for me.

I believe that he does. It's just a really odd looking mouthplate.
Dashdragon
I'll say that it looks better than it did before, but I'm still not really digging it. All that green is just ugh (regardless of what happens to him, the sword is not supposed to be green)

Also, where's his faceplate? He looks even goofier without it here than his old face did. Optimus toys should always have it, whether they give an option to hide/remove it is the question, but it should always be there to begin with...
worldruined
...Weird. What's up with that face?
Sludge
An auction just went up on eBay if anybody is interested in seeing the box (if we haven't already)

ZacWilliam
Wow that looks significantly better than the last set of pics I saw.

It's really pretty cool looking, but I just don't need another Optimus. Hope it gets a good Remold/Repaint maybe.

-ZacWilliam, be a Spectacular Thunderclash...
WhiteMocha
Still passing on this guy (don't really need another Prime Prime), but he does look a lot better in these photos. If he gets a good repaint (ideally as a different character) I might spring for that.
Impactor 84
he looks awesome! but why is his so weird looking? and is that a green star saber or just a sword? either WANT IT!
Molina00
I like the shade of the red and blue, not too crazy about the green, but overall he looks pretty cool and much better than the previous pics that were released of him. Plus he gets an oversized sword which PRID Prime was sadly lacking. Hasbro is doing so much better on weapons lately with FoC wave 3 and the BH releases. I'm keeping my pre-order.

very nice find !! it looks very good in box too, can't wait to see the takara version

Transformed
Why green? Green just makes this thing look bad--love the robot mode though.

Bad colors and the lack of colors hurt this guy big time.

Is this really a Voyager class figure? It looks small to me for some reason...
StayingInTheBox
That's an interesting looking figure. It's like Animated, Energon, Cybertron, and Prime all had a baby. I'm interested I think ... we'll see.
The Bucket Kitten
He looks great, can't wait to buy him.

I'm not a "hater", I'm a "disliker". The FE and Cyberverse Optimus are two of my favorite molds, not to mention me being a huge Optimus fan in general.

It just looks like a new design team are working on these. Hard to believe this is the same line as before. Optimus' face looks like an old corpse with a new body attached (may be fitting based on the recent events, but still). It almost looks skeletal.....
Rob
Very Nice! Needs a bit of detailling done and the green has to go (on less thats how he appears in the show) but, awesome looking. I hope he is as big as Voyager FOC Soundwave.

I am a novice to painting but would a black magic marker with future floor finish tint the windows black and get rid of the green or would the green still shine through?
CodeXCDM
Still prefer FE Prime... but this figure is worthwhile enough to get and repurpose I suppose... Who would work as a repaint though... Toxitron? Motormaster? An older deco of a Prime variant or repaint? ...hm...
gothsaurus
Yeah, here's hoping for a blue window Takara version.

He is SOOOO ripe for a repaint as Motormaster AND Nova Prime. That would be ahhhhmazing. I'd buy those for sure. Heck, I'd take back all the mean things I said about this mold if they put out a Nova Prime version.
